Pae White

Drawn from an abundance of art historical and pop cultural sources, Pae White's cascading mobiles evoke everything from schools of fish, flocks of birds, and teeming ponds, to Impressionist paintings with their myriad marks. White describes this body of work as "an exploration of movement contained." Like "a waterfall on pause" the works are "a flurry of color and gentle movement, suspended for contemplation." Made with brightly colored cut paper strung on colored thread, the pieces move in response to the slightest breath, defining three-dimensional space while remaining fluid. 
" enchanting wonderland of visual delight and sensual savvy"
